VISIT THIS WORLD HERITAGE SITE IN SOUTH AFRICA

Mapungubw © Image: Obie Oberholzer

As you enter the Mapugubwe National Park and World Heritage Site, one of the things that first captures the eye is the architecture of the Museum and Interpretive Centre. The extraordinary curvature and lines of the building will mesmerise all visitors but the true treasures are located inside.

The centre was constructed with the intention of merging the natural location with the park's cultural heritage, by using modern environmentally sensitive techniques. In 2009 the building won the World Architectural Building of the Year Award, out-performing buildings from New York, Singapore and China. The stone-walling technique used in the building of the centre was adopted from a native method prevalent in the Mapungubwe area.
